After a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance at Leigh Street Wine Room last year Melbourne favourite Belles Hot Chicken is coming back to Adelaide – for one night only at Tasting Australia.
“Love Potions” will be held at the Grand Lodge of Freemasons on North Terrace and bring together 30 of Australia’s best beverage brands for a night of music, drinks, and snacks by Belles founder-chef Morgan McGlone. Think Nashville-style chicken wings, ribs, spicy chicken sliders and more. Producers include Pirate Life, Starward Whisky, KI Spirits, Adelaide Hills Distillery, Prohibition Liquor Co, Seppeltsfield and more.
Belles has been a hit in Melbourne since McGlone and then-business partner Aaron Turner opened the Nashville-inspired fried-chicken joint in Fitzroy in 2014. Turner (who went on to open Igni and Hot Chicken Project) has since been replaced by Miranda Campbell, but Belles has gone from strength to strength, opening several more locations in Melbourne, and three in Sydney.
McGlone will also be cooking at Tasting Australia's Glasshouse Kitchen, alongside chefs Shohei Yasuda, Victor Liong, and Nathan Sasi. McGlone and Sasi previously shuffled pans together at chef Sean Brock’s acclaimed restaurant Husk in South Carolina.
From 7.30pm to 12am.
